Electroacupuncture: Super-powered treatment for pain and sports injury.
As an acupuncturist specializing in musculoskeletal pain and sports injuries, I have experience, tools, and tricks up my sleeve for enabling healing and getting results. One of those tools is called Electroacupuncture. While it may sound scary or strange, electroacupuncture is painless and incredibly effective. Read on to learn what it is, how it works, and how it can help you heal faster. This is especially helpful info for those of you currently training for the NYC Marathon or the Ironman Triathlon.
To understand it better, let’s take a look at my success treating my patient David, who severely sprained his ankle four weeks ago while working out. David, one of the city’s top massage therapists and owner of Bodyworks DW (location of my office and community acupuncture clinic every Thursday), knew to come in for a session immediately after his injury—and the combination of his quick thinking, self-care and my well-placed needles helped to decrease pain and swelling, accelerate healing, and increase mobility right off the bat. I highly suggest checking out his advice on how to self-care and recover faster for a sprained ankle, without using the obsolete RICE method, here.
